when they contract COVID-19

There are two ways you can help frontline workers, aside from saying Thank you:

First, send a message to Doug Ford, Premier of Ontario and Tom Teahan, President of the WSIB
ONIWG has created a preformated message, which can be easily sent on your behalf click here for more
